      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord ( is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

  1. Couple TFC Questions:

    I remember seeing something like that before in a video with Direwolf and HatFilms. In the top right of the screen it shows the block name of the targeted block. Here's the link to the vid, where you can see for yourself . It's not part of the FTB mod, or at least it's a function I'm unaware of, but there seems to be something out there to do it.Though, like the other guys have said, it not something you really need to worry about a great deal. You'll eventually become familiar with the significant blocks and what they hold and the rest would just be something to check the wiki when you're trying to find something specific. (update) Well from looking through the comments, Gankachi said "You just need to go under the options in your menu (NEI) and you have to click on "Highlight Tip hidden" and it will show up!" Though I seem to recall something about an issue with NEI and TFC. Been a while since i've played and never really used NEI in TFC, so don't know if that issue is still present. But that is one way to check out the names of blocks without harvesting them, if if works that is . Oh, and Welcome to TFC, enjoy .
  2. Previously you've been able to get more then one type of ore from sluices, though unsure if anything has changed in regards to that. As for the nickel, I've never gotten anything but starter metals, but I recall people saying they could get gold and such from underground sluices (and to use them to prospect the area). So I'd image your able to, but I don't have any 1st hand experience there.
  3. How do i use mcedit witht his mod?

    Well, pretty sure he was referring to this post: Don't remember where the yaml file is located, I think the 2nd or third page, but might as well give it a read to find out what to do, if you don't already know.
  4. Animals!

    As long as they don't run off or get chased off with all your goods . Ohhhhhh, nice.
  5. What am I doing wrong!!!

    Well, it's normally found by rivers, and there is normally an abundance of clay to be found in swampy areas. Also Clay can be covered by grass along the shorelines, so you might have ran over it without even noticing. So just be vigilant, maybe checking the soil along rivers, or as I like to suggest, you could always try posting your seed (and probably ur cords), and maybe someone with some time, could locate one for you. If nothing else, just keep looking and good luck. Also If you've just never seen how they spawn, here's an example, plus a link to several more. Album here
  6. I just got the worst TFcraft spawn imagable

    That happened recently to my brother on our fresh SMP server. I spawned just fine though, so just told him to commit suicide, and then he spawned at the correct layer. Might have just happened because the world was still loading when he joined though.
  7. Yah, I too enjoyed passively getting ore from the sluices, while doing actual work. It's just that the last few times I have set them up, they've produced soo poorly that I could easily acquire more nuggets in the time it took to setup the sluices, fill them up and check on them.
  8. Only copper?!

    Far as I know that rock would be borax, but that'd still require a pick to acquire. Which sadly would mean that he'd still need a tier one zero metal (pickaxe) in order to harvest it, before he could even make the flux with the stone hammer.
  9. Well, I didn't find on the wiki where it said sluices had to be in a river biome (though I really only checked the sluice page); but just FYI, it was just gold panning that had to be done in the river, sluices could be place in any region. As for your results, doesn't seem too surprising, though perhaps a bit unfortunate. To me it would appear that they had 'recently' been nerfed, so I had ceased construction of my sluice facility. My suggestion would be to just pick up the small nuggets off the ground (marking where you find several of them), and just get your starter metals that way. It'll be a lot faster exploring a bit, then dumping tons of gravel in the sluices while waiting days for just a few small nuggets.
  10. Deep caves?

    Well they can certainly get large (seen below), but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're worth exploring. The one shown below I used like half my iron armor, who knows how many torches and and on one trip (I think) probably almost an entire stack of apples, and all I found was a coal deposit and some useless minerals (if not less). But on a slightly better note (still no ores), I've also found a water filled ravine with lapis and also a large deposit of coal in the bottom.
  11. Only copper?!

    I was thinking that, but I don't think this is possible anymore, without stone pickaxes. Because, without access to tier one metals to get a metal hammer, the only way to get the flux needed for an anvil would be from borax, and I think you'd need the stone pickax to even get that (not that I have EVER found any).
  12. Freeze at converting world (mac)

    Well not sure specifically, but since forge 113 or something, it comes with modloader so you don't need to install it (and they say just don't do it). If that does't resolve it (which I don't think it will), can you specifically list the versions of forge and player API you're using (mine currently works with forge ver 275 and 1.4 API). And can I assume that you installed forge and then player API, because install order does matter. Also, just FYI, it will do that when trying to create a flatland map or anything other then TFC default as the World Type. So my suggestion would be to just try a clean install without modloader, maybe an older version of forge, and let us know further details if you're still encountering issues. Hope you get it working without too much trouble Max and hope you enjoy it once you get it all up and running.
  13. Vanilla Minecraft getting anvils

    Yah, without a doubt, the anvils in TFC look better. But if they're just used to crush things, I guess they work fine; though I think the spiky piston still would have been better.
  14. Crash using 1.3.2

    Increase the allocated memory for java/minecraft? something like this ""C:Program FilesJavajre7binjavaw.exe" -Xincgc -Xms3G -jar "*********" ****** = where u have the minecraft.exe. (e.g. c:minecraft.exe) (1GB, probably isn't much for TFC, think mine normally runs at 1.7 in use) Make sure you're running the most up-to-date java? Is it just you that's crashing? And just open LAN, not a server over LAN? Crash occur if you host? Crash with different world?
  15. Animals!

    Slinging packs on the horses too, would be interesting, though I also see a lot of dead horses from running off sudden cliffs and lots of small ledges.
